are in the difficult middle of this debate, shira. >> thank you. >> the objective middle. the tiny little space that's about this big. i'm wondering at roll call if you see obama care being an issue that lasts all the way to november 2014. >> yes. and unfortunately for my reporters, too, who are so sick about writing about this story line, because we have done it for the last three cycle, i do see it as being the primary issue for elections in 2014, no doubt about it. especially given what ross detailed about how the deadlines, new parts of the law are going to come to light every few months or so, we are going to be talking about this and seeing it on campaign ads between now and november. >> i want you guys to weigh in quickly on the other big story of the day, the supreme court telling us that it will take up the issue of obama care again, at least one part of it. the justices agreed to take up the issue of the law that requires employers of a certain size to offer insurance coverage for birth control and other reproductive health services without a co-pay. maria, how big of a deal do you think t
-in this deal will be another obama administration failure. susan, good morning. you on with trita parsi. caller: thank you for educating us on what is happening. since this was a big issue, my question on the heels of the how did thats, treaty and any of the safeguards having to do with compliance of nuclear weapons mixed in with the agreement that was just passed this weekend? are we ignoring what was discussed at the united nations or did the united nation's not include anything to do with nuclear weapons used for mass destruction? guest: the treaty is the basis of this agreement. it is specifically mentioned in the text as well is on the last page of the deal. that is something the iranians insisted on. their interpretation is that there is such a right to enrich -- such a thing as the right to enrich. statest think the united has had any objections to that. the difference has been the difference of interpretation of ,rticle four of the treaty whether there is a right to enrich or not. using that as a legal framework, the two sides made progress last year, whatis happened this past weekend,
different. >> right. fact and puns from pete williams, thank you very much. let's bring in the steen yor staff attorney for the acla and former health insurance executive officer wendell potter. hobby lobby would pay approximately 1.3 million a day for obama care or the affordable care act for its employees if this would go through, certainly not saying this is motivation here but money is a part of some of the objection from companies and here you have this rare objection from a corporation based on its religion. >> well, i believe that money would be if the -- if the company decided to pay the fine and that's where the money that money would come into it. but i think even if the court sides with hobby lobby, it would not be a crippling blow to the affordable care act. it would further person fi corporations and where do you begin to draw the line? it also would be discriminatory in my view against women and in particular, women who might not make it much money and work for these corporations would be left on their own to be able to have to buy contraception. >> bridge it, let's talk ab

. >> ifill: i'm cold just thinking about it. bernie rayno, thank you very much. >> ifill: another aspect of the health care law will be delayed. this time, the online health insurance marketplace for small businesses. obama administration officials announced the one-year delay during a conference call with reporters today. they said pushing back the deadline for implementation would give the troubled healthcare.gov website time to make needed fixes. we'll get more details on the delay and what it means to small business owners after this news summary. afghan president hamid karzai softened some of his security demands today. he told radio free europe he'd sign a deal with the u.s. if military raids on afghan homes end and if the u.s. helps restart peace talks with the taliban. he said, "whenever the americans meet these two demands of mine, i am ready to sign the agreement." that agreement would govern the future of american troops in afghanistan beyond 2014. the u.s. wants it signed by the end of the year, but karzai has said it can wait until next spring. a string of attacks across ira
cirincione. thank you for being here. >> my pleasure, rachel. thank you for having me. >> you are an acute observer of processes, diplomatic and otherwise, around the world regarding nuclear proliferation and nuclear weapons. what did the obama administration do that the bush administration and their predecessors weren't able to do in order to get this deal? >> well, as you pointed out, when the president came into office, he had a mess on his hands. people were comparing the legacy that he inherited to the legacy that abraham lincoln had to deal with or franklin delano roosevelt had to deal with, and it didn't make it any easier to fix those problems when you had your political opponents fighting you every day, every step of the way and you had some of your allies and friends looking aside and not helping you. but he was determined. and remember, in his inaugural speech, his very first day in office, to extend the hand of friendship to iran, to break with the bush administration approach that thought you could change the regime, overthrow it, coerce it into surrender. that policy led iran
blacks, hispanics, up liberals coming tended to cluster in central cities in university towns thank communities and have huge percentages to give democrats a big advantage. we'll get the election you will see barack obama 155% or more of the vote and 13 states only 91 votes short of that college majority those states were not contested. the vintage comes then equal population because outside those democratic clusters republican voters are spread more evenly around. so you find them, they're hurt in the electoral college only in those states 55% or more he had a much longer route to go but when you look at congressional districts you see a different picture not just because of redistricting it is a minor effect. if you compare george of the bush 2004 reelected with a popular vote and 2012 reelected 51%. bush carries the electoral college barack obama electoral college 332 nearly 50 more. but how many congressional districts? that is not relative but in a straight ticket country it is relevant for the house. george of the bush 255 john kerry 180. barack obama 201-2209 districts mitt r
